Our Garden ~ Cooking in the Junior Room

As Autumn comes to an end the Junior Room decided to  have one last dig in the garden.We collected carrots, onions , silver beet, rosemary, garlic and a leek. (the garlic and the leek came from Ms Johnstone’s garden-but it is just up the road).What to make?  For a bit of inspiration we read the book the Great Grumbler and the wonder Tree!
We decided on carrot cake and silverbeet pie.  
Mrs A helped the cake group and   Ms. Johnstone supervised the pie making.
The  pie tasted better than we thought it would although Bryn took a bit of encouragement to eat his silverbeet, but he didn’t grumble. The carrot cake was delicious.  From Ms Johnstone
